Issued by Hunterdon Co. NJ
This jacket was issued to Hunterdon Co. Sherrif's Department; the original patches were all professionally removed, although they have left shadows... which simply add to this jacket's appeal!
This is a seriously heavy item of clothing--as you'd expect from something that actually IS workwear, rather than merely being made to LOOK like workwear by a hipster artisan in a loft in Brooklyn. It's a standard-issue "Boston PD" motorcycle jacket, with two deep slash pockets in front and faux snap chest pockets. It has a very sturdy and oversized YKK reversible zipper that runs beautifully fluidly. It the original twin holes to carry the police badge, and a bi-swing back for ease of movement. The cuffs are gauntlet American cuffs. The sides feature inset YKK zippers; when opened the jacket's sides can be held in place by adjustable straps that snap to the hem of the jacket. This feature serves the dual purpose for police officers of providing easy access to weapons and toolbelt, and allowing ease of movement and ventilation while riding. The zipper is backed by a windflap for added warmth.
This jacket has two very deep interior side pockets that are set into the seams. It also has an interior zip for an option lining, which is not included. It has a one-piece back.
This jacket is in absolutely excellent condition--the only possible flaw is the shadowing created by the removal of the original official patches on the sleeves. This appears to be a heavy cowhide jacket-and so is a bargain at just $85 > 75, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA This jacket is likely to protect and to serve you well for decades!
